“Gorgeous harmonies and fine song writing, beautiful instrumental interplay, and some seriously rippin’ solos,

The Unfaithful Servants are one of the most exciting bands from Vancouver Island in some time”

~ Kelly Nakatsuka, Islands Folk Festival Director, CBC/Radio-Canada



The Unfaithful Servants Bring Chapel Goers to Their Feet

It was hard not to keep my foot tapping and head bobbing to the phenomenal sonancy produced by the extremely underrated band The Unfaithful Servants. The dimly lit Providence Farm Chapel added to this experience as it’s a beautiful and intimate venue to watch the four talented string-virtuosos (bass, guitar, mandolin, and violin) centred around one mic—traditional bluegrass style.
The Unfaithful Servants have great potential to quench all your bluegrass music needs, but sprinkle in accents of rock and roll to keeps it exciting. All four stringed instruments collaborating with impressive harmonies from Dylan Stone, Jesse Cobb, Miriam Sonstenes, and Alex Rempel, filled the Chapel with a rich and proficient sound.
Showcasing mostly original compositions like “Friends” and “Big Wave”—which contained lyrics provoking blissful feelings of road trips down the coast with your favourite people—mixed in with a few cover renditions the audience could sing along to.
Dylan Stone’s voice was deep and smooth, but the spotlight was shared between instruments and vocalists, as they each had their own solos that left the audience astounded at the musical prowess possessed by this group of musical masters. The band made light banter which evoked a very personal and entertaining stage presence—every member evidently having fun as they physically got into their performance.
I entered the Chapel unfamiliar with the bluegrass genre and left a reformed Unfaithful Servants fan. If you’re keen on folky music or even if you’re not certain, I would highly recommend opening your mind and ears up to the allure and artistry of The Unfaithful Servants.
